After a fruitful first fifteen months uncovering quality music from around the globe and across the musical spectrum (all the way from deep house to nu disco), London upstarts, Nang, mark the beginning of a summer they’ll be spending in some of Europe’s more evocative spots (mainly Hackney Wick) with a collection of elegantly pulsing, occasionally synapse stroking tunes for the mind, body and soul.

Things get off to a literal start as Max Essa’s “Back to the Beach” floats in on a sunny cloud of Balearic riffs and neat basslines and Scandinavian head, Dolle Jolle, keeps things thematic with the classy “Balearic Incarnation” before newly arrived premier league player, Tensnake, takes the mix on a bit of a detour with the Chigago flavours of the awesome “Holding Back (My Love)”.

From then on a deep and groovy enveloping feel, central to any proper beach disco session, remains but different musical angles are explored throughout. Red Rack’em gets his chunky Detroit inspired funk on, Todd Terje turns Chaz Jankel’s “Glad to Know You” into a piano driven treat and Bogdan Irkuk brings Eastern European machine funk to the party.

Smith & Mudd sample “Air” to mesmerizing effect, the Diaphanoids provide the kind of sparkling, chugging, spacey backdrop that makes such perfect sense under the stars on balmy nights and A Mountain Of One close the party in the dunes in the way bearded guardians of the Balearic flame should – sounding like an epic, blissed out Floyd drifting away over the embers of the dying fire, another summers day and night lived to the full.
